excellence in teaching was the cause for the
establishment in 1839 of the first state-
supported Normal School in America at
Lexington, Massachusetts. This school was
devoted to the training of teachers as excel-
lent educators, and in this pursuit the school
which now bears the name Framingham
State College continues in the same tradition
to maintain an excellence among its gradu-
ates, many of whom after graduation enter
teaching careers. The high standards set for
the school by Cyrus Peirce and by Horace
Mann continue to be the measure of today's
The origins of the First Normal School and
the historical forces which brought about its
creation are many. The history of the school
could be traced from the beginnings of the
protestant reformation in Europe and the be-
lief that all Christians should have the ability to
read and judge the scriptures for themselves.
Horace Mann and Edmund Dwieht.
The early. Puritan settlers of Massachusetts
were firm believers in public education for re-
ligious reasons, and they were responsible for
the creation of Harvard College in 1636 and
also of the Grammar and Dame schools in the
Bay Colony. The Dame schools were the be-
ginnings of local elementary schools. The
grammar schools were the beginnings of the
high school system. These institutions were
created by the Puritans to maintain a level of
cultural sophistication in the New World
which they feared would be lost living so far
and with so little communication with En-
Working with this force of religious free-
dom, a new force of political freedom also
emerged leading to the creation of the
Normal Schools. In order to have an elec-
torate able to make educated decisions re-
garding who should lead and who should be
elected, the early Americans understood the
importance of reading, writing, and mathem-
atics in producing able citizens and voters.
Education was indispensable to the common
people if they were to govern themselves; thus
education was vital to the young republic.
Massachusetts had long believed in the nec-
essity of public education but after the Re-
volutionary War this need was never more ob-
vious. The public had to be educated, and
education therefore became a public respon-
In the first decades of the 1 800's, the level
of education in Massachusetts school was
poor. Teachers were incapable of educating
their students because they themselves had
received poor educations and were not
grounded in simple arithmetic and grammar.
There was no system of regulating teachers or
of determining who was qualified to teach.
Social reform was needed and a debate
began in the Boston State House which was to
be instrumental in the founding of Framing-
ham State College.
Three men were responsible for the cre-
ation at Lexington of the First Normal School.
They were Horace Mann, Cyrus Peirce, and
Edmund Dwight. These men between them
were to supply, each in his own way, the nec-
essary attention and labor for the survival of
the school which started as a three year ex-
periment. Horace Mann lead the party which
sought to establish the Normal Schools,
which were schools dedicated to the training
of teachers. These schools existed in France
and Prussia before they were established in
Massachusetts. The state legislature in ex-
amining the issue of state schools studied the
operation of these schools in Europe and
their establishment in Massachusetts was
eventually seen as necessary. Opposition to
the Normal schools came from those who be-
lieved that education should not be publicly
funded for women in higher education. The
schools were believed unnecessary but in
1838, Governor Everett of Massachusetts
signed a bill which called for the establish-
ment of the three schools established first at
Lexington, then at Bare and finally at Bridge-
water in 1 840. All three of these schools exist
today. The first is located at Framingham, the
second is in Westfield and the third is Bridge-
water State College. While Horace Mann lead
the fight to establish the Normal schools in
Massachusetts, he also convinced phil-
anthropist Edmund Dwight of the need as
well. It was Dwight who provided the initial
funds needed by the school for equipment

While Horace Mann managed to convince the
legislature of the need to establish the Normal
schools and then brought those schools about, it
was the Normal School's first principal, Cyrus
Peirce, who made the Normal School in Lexing-
ton the initial success that it was. Peirce dedicated
himself totally to the school and he was the sole
instructor of the famous first class of 1 840. These
twenty-five women would themselves go on to
educate, and Peirce was responsible for their
training. Peirce offered his students an education
which was the best he could provide and despite
initial difficulties and despair that can be read in
his journal, the school flourished. Besides the
classes for the Normal School students, there
also was established a model school where
Peirce's students could be trained by teaching
their own students. These training sessions, now
called field study and student teaching, are still an
essential part of the education department today.
Peirce's contribution to the Normal schools
cannot be overstated. Without him the school
would not have been the success that it was.
Horace Mann provided the political stage for the
creation of the Normal Schools. Edmund Dwight
supported these schools with his personal funds.
Cyrus Peirce equipped and established the
schools and became the motivating factor for his
students. These three men insured between them
the continuation of so important a part of the
public education system of Massachusetts.
The First Normal School in America was a pre-
cedent in the education of women. Though
private schools existed for the education of young
women, for the first time public education con-
cerned itself with the higher education of women
to become educators. In time, the women who
attended the Normal School would choose other
careers for themselves besides education. Some
would go on to be lawyers and doctors. Others
chose to be missionaries and authors. This
school which was created for excellence in the
education of children became a place for educa-
tion for its own sake. The importance of this is self
evident. Women deserve the same educational
chances as men and though it took time, the
Normal School was the place where women
could expect to receive a comparable education
to that which men received. Women in time would
even lead the Normal Schools as principal. This
would occur twice in the history of the school.
The three year experiment to see if the Normal
schools would be a benefit to the Commonwealth
showed that not only were the schools necessary,
but they were indispensable to public education.
They were a concept which was essential to

Framingham, Massachusetts responded to the needs of the Normal School. The town offered the neces-
sary funds and the tract of land on the present site where May Hall stands today. The relationship which
began in 1853 was to be mutually beneficial to both the town and the college. Framingham proved to be

With the celebration of the first twenty-five
years of Framingham State College, the
people attending the graduation ceremony in
1 864, learned of the struggles that the school
had overcome to become the institution it
had, through the welcoming words of Electa
Lincoln Walton. "From a child whose life was
so precarious that it would seem a breath
might blow it away ... it has become an Alma
Mater — our Alma Mater." While all who at-
tended were impressed with the school's ac-
complishments, the school was to face many
changes in the next twenty-five years, contain-
ing the accomplishments of many alumni
who would return to their school to give back
what they had learned.
One of the most noticeable changes oc-
curred in 1 865 when Annie Johnson, assis-
tant to Cyrus Peirce, served as acting principal
from the fall of 1 865 until the spring of 1 866.
Due to her excellent leadership and ability to
run the school, Annie Johnson was inaugu-
rated as principal as recommended by the
members of the board. Under Miss Johnson's
administration the school was pushed by her
desire to improve the programs for the
students, being a strong advocate for the pro-
gram proposed to add another two years of
Miss Johnson also restored the school
back to it's original purpose of teaching.
When the school had moved to Framingham
there was difficulty as to where the model
school would be and it was not reestablished
until Miss Johnson was principal. The school
also took part in expansion when the leg-
islature allowed funds to expand the campus,
building a boarding house and renovating the
school house. After giving to the school and
being paid the lower wages of being a woman
teacher, when Miss Johnson was offered a job
as principal at another school which paid
much more money she accepted the job.
This forced the members of the board to
look again to find a replacement and she was
found in Ellen Hyde, alumna, teacher and
senior assistant to Miss Johnson. Miss Hyde
worked to expand the school working with
Blacks and Indians, while taking on boarders
at the boarding house and accepting a
Normal Hall & Dormitory.
When the school moved to the
present site on Bare Hill in 1853
Normal Hall was constructed, fol-
lowed by a dormitory built in 1869
on newly acquired land. The dormi-
tory was renamed Normal Hall to
commemorate the original Normal
Hall which was torn down in 1870
to construct a better equipped
building for the school. The dormi-
tory. Normal Hall, was burned on

with the Hampton School, a school for Blacks

Framingham Normal School had an associa-
tion with Olivia Davidson Washington, the co-
founder of Tuskeegee Institute with her hus-
band Booker T. Washington. Mrs. Wash-
ington studied at Framingham in an ex-
change program with Hampton. Framing-
ham also were sent Annie Dawson, an Indian
from South Dakota who studied and then re-
turned to her reservation to work with her
people. It is in this way that Miss Ellen Hyde
added to the school's expansion. As the
fiftieth anniversary approached the school
grew, the model school, now called the prac-
tice school had increased in size under the
watchful eye of Miss Hyde and the campus
had expanded once again to include another
dormitory, Crocker Hall, named for Lucretia
Crocker, an alumna and Science Supervisor
for the Boston schools. The building burned
within the year and it was rebuilt as soon as
possible and still stands today.
On July 2, 1 889, during the fiftieth anniver-
sary celebrations of the First Normal School
in America, Principal Ellen Hyde gave the
Address of Welcome. She stated, "... keep
the old school abreast with all the progress of
the future, that she may come to her centen-
nial day with her eye undimmed and her
strength unabated, crowned with the honors
of age, but still keeping the vigor of immortal
As Miss Hyde spoke of the school being
crowned with the honors of age but still keep-
ing the vigor of immortal youth; the statement
had reference to her own life in that she had
been asked to step down just one month pre-
viously. She was given the honor of the per-
manent appointment of President of the
Association and a resolution of recognition
and praise was sent to the press. It is on this
note that the tenure of Ellen Hyde was
brought to a close.
The school then prepared for the arrival of
the new principal Henry Whittemore. The
changes made by Whittemore in the begin-
ning were gradual. They involved the hiring of
new instructors for the Household Arts De-
partment and Physics and Chemistry depart-
ments as well as a director for the Glee Club.
In the years following there would be reorga-
nization on the campus, involving a school
that needed to expand, with a new dormitory
reserved for people outside Framingham who
wanted to take part in the new and very suc-
cessful Household Arts Program. This pro-
gram was a two year program which incorpo-

From 1914 on, the school obtained a dif-
ferent look, more confident than before, with
changes going on right before the eyes of
those involved. Cornerstones were laid for
both Peirce Hall and Horace Mann. The Prac-
tice School which had expanded even more
was moved to a local school on the Framing-
ham Common. In addition Framingham Nor-
mal was picked to be the headquarters for the
Vocational Program for women that had just
been instituted by the Legislature. With all of
this change also came the beginning of World
War I, where the women attending the college
became involved in sewing and cooking to

help those in the war.
After the war, the country was thrown into
the spirit of the twenties, yet Framingham
Teachers College, as it was now called, still in-
sured that its students would be at all times,
representatives of the college and they would
go on to instruct future generations. It is in this
time that Mr. Whittemore leaves his post and
the school goes through two different short
term principals Edward Chalmers and
Francis Bagnall. During this time, ground was
broken for another academic building, which
would come to be known as Dwight Hall in
1937. This progress was dampened by the
burning of May Hall in 1 935 as well as the con-
demning of Crocker Hall as a dormitory.
After this time of somewhat standstill for the
college, there was a new principal (now called
President) appointed in 1935. Once again
Framingham rebuilt from it's tragedies and
prepared to look toward the future under a
new president, Martin F. O'Connor. The be-
ginning of O'Connor's tenure served not to be
an easy task. In 1 938, the campus was hit with
a hurricane which destroyed the roofs of
Dwight, May, Wells and Crocker Halls. Formal
repairs were started right away, due to the up-
coming centennial celebration. Upon recog-
nition of this milestone, which featured a
pageant and hymns from the choir, Martin F.
O'Connor prepared to move wholeheartedly
into his duties as president. From this point on
he could overlook all of the troubles experi-
enced by the college and look toward plans
for the future.
Martin F. O'Connor was an admired man,
who had the ability to know a little bit about all
of the students on his campus. He was outgo-
ing and always there for the faculty and the
students. Under the tutelage of O'Connor,
several advances took place. The division of
Continuing Education was established in
1956, The Household Arts became Home
Economics, and co-curricular activities were
beginning to increase in popularity. Some of
these included, Hilltop Players, Hillel, Music
Club and the inception of Faculty-Student
Field Day as well as overall interest in things
outside the classroom. In this way, the college
made its first steps in realizing that the student
had other needs outside of the classroom.
Martin F. O'Connor contributed to the overall
growth in the school not only in programs but
in the pride and honor connected with
Framingham. In 1961 , he chose to step down
as president and hand the responsibility of a
growing institution to someone capable of
bringing the State College at Framingham,
(official title as of 1960), to new heights.
He was succeeded by D. Justin McCarthy. It
was during his tenure that the most noticeable
changes took place, starting with the change
of name to Framingham State College. This
was the first of many changes to come. These
included, the growing programs to include
many outside of the teaching realm some in-
clude Art, Media (now Communication Arts),
History and more of an all encompassing
world of knowledge. With the acceptance of
men in 1964, the school grew to not only
trained to teach the future, but also those who
will contribute to the world in other ways.
Seventh-five years after Ellen Hyde spoke
those words, the school celebrated its one
hundred and twenty-fifth anniversary under
President D. Justin McCarthy. The century be-
tween 1 864 and 1 964 was to mark a period of
preserving the past while at the same time
recognizing the needs of change and preserv-

Hyde spoke of youth, progress, and the
realization of high ideals. Her words and the
general expression of those words by so many
talented women who sought to bring a reality
to them, did not waiver. 1964 marked one of
the most important changes in the history of
the Normal School. Male students were en-
rolled for the first time at the College. Physical
expansion of school buildings was dramatic-
ally changing the look of the campus as well
as the addition of new residence halls. Hyde
herself would never recognize Framingham
State College as the successor of the Normal
School. Though the College has changed
completely in the past twenty-five years it is to
the period of 1864 and 1964 that today's
Framingham can look to for its most impor-
tant historical legacies and its ideological and
philosophical base. Education and the
Household Arts later incorporated into Home
Economics in 1 898 were the focus of studies
at Framingham during this period of one hun-
dred Septembers. Since 1 964, the process of
transition from a small women's college to the
college we know today has been remarkable.
In the complexity of that change and the com-
plete alteration of both academic study which
came about through the addition of new
majors and more involved and specialized
courses, and the ever improving and higher
standards set for students in the tradition of
excellence inherited from the days of Cyrus
Peirce. It is to Hyde and her contemporaries
that we can look in thanks for maintaining the
very best of the school's tradition while insur-
ing that the education received was at the
highest possible level. It was a period of con-
tinuity and endless refinement. It sought to re-
main at the forefront of education and it never
lost its Utopian goal of perfection. In inheriting
this desire, we can hear the challenge Hyde
set for both herself and her fellow graduates of
the school. "Change must and will come
about but if the college is to prosper, we must
always remember the purpose of the Normal
School and the reason for its creation."
Though Framingham graduates may
never have heard of Principal Ellen Hyde, they
certainly know of Framingham's high goals.
Though the speakers of the words may not be
remembered, the value they placed on educa-
tion has been passed on to the modern day.
There are physical reminders on campus of
this time period, May Hall, Crocker Hall, and
other buildings, but it is the ideological base
that separates and defines the problems that
we must deal with today. A better society is
brought about through education and there-
fore educators must have the highest possible

standards. This was Ellen Hyde's challenge. It
is one that today's Framingham State College
still sets for itself.
Cyrus Peirce, Horace Mann, and those who
believed in the importance of education
passed on an inheritance which was highly
praised by Hyde and the educators and
administrators who followed her. 1864
marked a turning point for the College, and
through education is not the only area of
study at today's school, excellence remains
the focus of Framingham students. With ever
modified and improved academic programs,
an honest desire to gain an education, and the
drive to make a difference through that learn-
ing, we continue to hold to the principles
which set Framingham an important place in
today's higher educational system. The First
Normal School in America has in the past and
will continue in the future to play an important
role in education and in the endless process
of the improvement of our society.

The period of 1 964 to 1 989 has been a time
of change and progress for all the nation. In
that time we have seen five different pres-
idents, the Vietnam War, man's first landing
on the moon, Watergate, and Iran Contra. As
the country both thrived and suffered under
the far-reaching events of the time, education
grew and improved.
This improvement could be seen in
Framingham State College itself. Three years
before, in 1961, Martin F. O'Connor had reti-
red and D. Justin McCarthy had taken the
presidency of this institution. After such a
popular president as O'Connor it would be
hard to make an impression as an incoming
administrator. In those first years. McCarthy
also had to face upheaval, in that there were a
great many personnel changes leaving him
with a brand new start with very little old stand-
ards to fall back on.
As far as academic programs, plans were
immediately made to expand the curriculum
to include new Masters of Education and
Bachelor of Science in Education programs.
Due to the expansion of degrees the college
was called upon to construct a new building,
the Mary Hemenway Hall.
In the first years McCarthy had to face many
new responsibilities, which included the dedi-
cations of the new Martin F. O'Connor dormi-
tory and Hemenway Hall, as well as planning
and hosting the upcoming 125 anniversary of
the college. As the college looked upon it's
anniversary in May of 1964, the school pro-
vided displays depicting the history of the col-
lege in twenty-five year spans. Guest Speaker

Brandeis University spoke on the unrest and
turmoil in the world by asking "What is Right

that was headed for the future was education.

lems of today are solved by the knowledge of
As Framingham looked toward the future,
they found ways to expand their college in
best possible ways. In 1964, with the first ac-
ceptance of men as undergraduate students
came the next logical progression to include
the expansion of the academic program. With
the acceptance of both men and women
came a wider interest in the programs of
study. Programs that were inaugurated in-
cluded English, History, Biology, and Medical
Technology. From this point on, until 1972, a
committee worked together to further in-
crease the offered courses at Framingham
State College and to develop a general educa-
tion core that would allow the student to have

burned on February 13.1914. The building was not finally demolished until after the First World War when construction began on Horace
Mann Hall, the present dormitory on the site. Horace Mann Hall, dedicated to one of the founders of the Normal School, officially opened
in 1920 and is connected to Peirce through a tunnel in the basements of the two buildings. This tunnel is now closed.

In 1887 the oldest building still standing on the campus was built and named Crocker Hall in honor of Lucretia Crocker, the first women
supervisor of the Boston Public Schools and an alumna f 1 850J. Crocker Hall, the second dormitory built, was damaged in the hurricane of
1 938 and work began on Crocker Hall at this time to fire proof the building. Today Crocker Hall serves as faculty offices for the Philosophy,

the beginning of his administration reviewing
the educational process at Framingham State
College and has worked to improve it so it will
continue to move the college toward the
a well-rounded education. With the cur-
riculum expansion of the college also came
more buildings. The early seventies saw the
construction of Lamed, Towers, Linsley, and
Foster: all residence halls on campus, and the
multipurpose D. Justin McCarthy College
Center building. With this roster of the great
amount of expansion that the college did in
the past two decades, we see that the eighties
have gone along the same route. The begin-
ning of the new decade also brought a new
building, Hemenway Annex and in 1985 a
new president to our institution, Dr. Paul F.

Alumni of Framingham have gone on to accomplish a
sweeping number of achievements. Initially the college's
principal function was to serve as a place for the training of
teachers, and Framingham graduates served to bring
about the highest standards of education in the Com-
monwealth aided by the years they learned from and
spent at Framingham. Not all graduates at Framingham
however became teachers. The women of the first one
hundred and twenty-five classes at the First Normal
school worked to distinguish themselves among their
peers no matter what field they chose.
Mary Swift Lamson of the first class to graduate from
the Normal school at Lexington was to become an inspi-
ration for following graduates. Her works with the Boston
W.Y.CA were extensive and she was one of its initial
founders. Her work with the blind was to eventually inspire
Helen Keller to learn to speak. Mary Swift Lamson was to
be Framingham's first success story but not its last. She
stands first in a long list of women whose work has helped
to fashion the way we see the world.
A graduate of the school in 1 843, Electa Lincoln Walton
was to serve as the first woman principal of the Normal
School in Framingham and she was a woman who took
the social concerns and the problems which faced
women seriously. She was a woman whose essential
strengths included a desire to see women elevated from
the second-class role in which they were held by the times
and she was an ardent suffrage advocate. Walton was a
woman who refused to be less than she could be to satisfy
her society and she in turn helped to form the image of
women as educators and leaders. She was a woman not
to be dismissed lightly and she remains an inspiration to
following graduates of the school. Her love of mathe-
matics was to be similarly held by another graduate of the
school, Lucretia Crocker.
Lucretia Crocker was not only a woman of rare abilities
she also possessed a remarkable ability to accept chal-
lenges and to succeed. She was the first woman super-
visor of the Boston Public School systems and was in-
fluential in making the Boston Society for Natural History
the success it soon became. She was an organizer, an
educator, and a woman who deserves to be remembered
as one of the very few at Framingham who were able to
conceive of grand designs and to see their creation during
her own lifetime. In her less then sixty years, Lucretia
Crocker was a role model for the goals of alumni.
Ellen Hyde was the second woman to perform the func-
tions of the Principal of the First Normal School, and it was
during her administration at Framingham that the school
entered the twentieth century. Hyde was a graduate of
Framingham in 1 862. Her appointment as principal of the
school in 1 875 was to mark a time of progress which was
to see the completion of May and Crocker Halls and the
long term attention of the school towards the education of
miniorities. Hyde was an able administrator and was

dearly loved by her students. Her connection with the
school was to be life-long and she served as President
of the Alumni Association from the time of her resigna-
tion in 1 898 until her death in 1 926. Ellen Hyde was a
woman who perceived the future and sought to bring
Framingham into the twentieth century with her end-
less strength and fortitude. She stands as one of Fram-
ingham's most gifted graduates.
Olivia Davidson Washington was to be instrumental
in the establishment of the Tuskeegee Institute in
Alabama. She was a graduate of Framingham's class
of 1 881 . With Booker T. Washington, who was later to
be her husband, Davidson helped to establish the
Normal School section of Tuskeegee on similar lines
as the Framingham School. Her career in trying to es-
tablish a place for the higher education blacks places
her at the fore front of the black movement in this
country. Her example to other black women was to be
enormously important at a time when education for
blacks was of poor quality.
Many graduates chose to work in education but
none received higher honors than Sophia Faulkner of
the class of 1867. In 1872 Miss Faulkner went to En-
gland to work for the Royal College for the Blind. Even-
tually she married Mr. Francis Campbell and their work
was so successful that Campbell was knighted by
Queen Victoria. Lady Campbell was not the only grad-
uate of Framingham to travel abroad to educate and
inspire. Corrina Shattuck, 1873, became a missionary
The last building completed on
campus in the 19th Century was
May Hall. The building was named
in honor of Abby May. the first
woman visitor and lecturer to
Framingham. May Hall was com-
pleted in 1889 during the fiftieth
anniversary of the school and
today it remains an academic hall
where History. English, Politics,
and Art are taught. In 1935 May
Hall partially burned. The building
caught fire in the south wing and
though the building was badly dam-
aged the portraits of the principals
of the school and the records of the
Normal school were saved. Di-
saster struck May Hall again in
1938 when a hurricane knocked off
the turrets which once were a fix-
ture of the roof. The hurricane
caused the roof of May Hall to be
remodeled, without its turrets.
in the Ottoman Empire in Europe where she was to
work with the Christian minorities of that country.
Theodora Wall, 1883, went to Japan where she also
worked as a missionary during the rapid modernization
of that country.
Other graduates of Framingham include Clara Hap-
good Nash of the class of 1872 who was New En-
gland's first female lawyer. Other graduates went on to
establish themselves as authors, teachers and some of
the first female professors at many colleges across the
country. Three women were responsible for the es-
tablishment of the Normal Schools in Argentina and
today they are honored with statues. Jennie Howard,
class of 1 866; Edith Howe, class of 1 867; and Elizabeth
Coolidge, clqss of 1 864 were instrumental in the early
years of the schools created at Corrientes and at
Certainly the most prominent graduate at Framing-
ham State College during the past twenty years has
been Christa Corrigan McAuliffe whose death in the
1985 NASA space shuttle accident was witnessed by
the whole nation. Christa was a graduate in 1970 and
during her years as a teacher in Concord, New Hamp-
shire, she was to exemplify the best qualities which can
be held by any Framingham graduate. After her being
chosen by the NASA program to be the first teacher in
space McAuliffe hoped to teach class from the shuttle
to schools across the country. Her death was a terrible
loss but her example of excellence remains as an inspi-
ration for all Framingham graduates.

Framingham State College has hosted many fam-
ous visitors during its one hundred and fifty year his-
tory. The school has seen the wisdom to invite impor-
tant men and women from various fields to speak at the
campus and to bring the current issues of our society
into focus for the entire campus community. Lectures
have been given on topics as varied as the fine arts,
Biology, Philosophy, and on topics as obscure as
southern dueling and as pressing as the human gene
code. In recent years Framingham has hosted lectures
by such writers as Maya Angelou, Toni Morrison and
Allen Ginsburg. In the realm of politics the school has
been a meeting place for political thought ranging
from anchor woman Maria Shriver to Massachusetts
Governor Michael Dukakis. Framingham has received
information from the men and women who have
played so vital a part in our government (Governors,
presidential advisors, and political visionaries). The
school remains committed to inviting to Framingham
more speakers through the Arts and Humanities Com-
mittee which is principally responsible for inviting each
year's lecturers. The benefits of guest speakers will
continue to give to Framingham students the ability to
listen and to question men and women whose voices
have made a difference in the world forum.

Co-curricular activities have had a long history
of providing a personal challenge to the student,
in the form of working with others towards a
common interest. Initially, Clubs on campus were
few, but currently there are close to fifty student-
run organizations. These include the school pub-
lications and WDJM, the Student Government
Association, the Student Gnion Activities Board,
and smaller clubs reflecting diverse aspects of in-
terest from International Awareness to the Film
Society. Alongside these clubs are the academic
clubs which have been extremely active in further-
ing one's knowledge outside of the classroom.
The earliest clubs were the Music Club and the
Home Economics Club. The Music Club has
played a prominent part in college life of the col-
lege since late in the 19th century. In the past the
Music Club has had several sections including a
concert choir and a chapel choir and enjoying its
highest popularity in the seventies. Currently, the
club gives concerts on the Village Green at a
nearby nursing home at Christmas time and bi-
annual performances for the school in Dwight
Auditorium. The club has had only three advisors,
the director today being Mr. James Savas. It is be-
cause of his dedication that students have dis-
covered a love for music and an appreciation of
The Home Economics Club was unofficially
founded in 1910 by students who desired to
pursue their field outside of the classroom. In
1924 the organization became affiliated with the
national organization and was officially re-
cognized by the school in January 1929, the club
was dedicated to Louisa B. Nicholass for her out-
standing performance as a professor at the

to be the forerunners of the many co-curricular
activities available today.
The present Student Government Association
did not have its present organization until 1976.
Then President James Steele and Vice President
Donna Bourassa drafted the initial constitution
which is still the core of today's SGA constitution.
The original meeting room of the organization
was Hemenway 309 but moved with the comple-
tion of the D. Justin McCarthy College Center
SGA moved into its present suite. Student Gov-
ernment itself consists of the Student Senate,
which is headed by the SGA president: the stu-
dent judicial board, and a variety of standing com-
mittees which have been responsible for monitor-
ing important goings-on around campus. These
committees tackle problems from the parking
situation, which has remained a chronic problem
since the 1 960's, to the annual blood mobile drive
held in the forum. The Student Government
Association remains the key organization on
campus and the voice of the students while also
encouraging the growth of the organizations
which it governs.
The Student (Jnion Activities Board is the
primary group on campus for the planning of so-
cial events on campus. The Sandbox weekends,
the Five and Dime events in the pub, and the day-
time entertainment planned for the commuter
cafeteria are just a few of the responsibilities of
SCJAB members. One of the largest clubs on
campus, SC1AB has played an important role on
campus, when it first occupied its present office
adjacent to the Student Activities office in 1 976.
This organization is divided into many standing
committees which help to make the social life at
Framingham State College enjoyable and mem-
The school radio station, WDJM, offers its
members the chance to have on-air time and to
experience hands-on training in media com-
munications. Always individualistic the radio sta-
tion plays a variety of music styles and offers an
alternative to more commercial radio stations.
Since the turn of the century student pub-
lications have found an important part in the
school's history. These publications have best re-
flected the ideas and humor of the college. The
first document was a hand produced and circu-
lated newsletter called The Normal Experiment.
The Senior Quill was the first yearbook and pre-
ceeded the Dial which was begun in 1915. The
Senior Quill produced several volumes which
concentrated on the senior class of each year.
The Dial eventually supplemented the Quill by in-
cluding the entire campus. The Dial embodies the
history of the school through its volumes. The
production of each year's Dial is a long process
which requires extensive layout and detailed copy

Established in 1931, the first Newspaper, the
Hilltop News was introduced. Its first editor was
Marie Blakie, Class of 1933. The following year
the name was changed to The Gatepost to honor
the newly erected gateposts. The largest of the
school publications, the Gateposts at times has
been controversial and has played an important
part in school elections as well as regularly in-
forming students about the issues on campus.
The Gatepost has an uninterrupted history since
1931 and is now a weekly newspaper that keeps
designated for State
students informed about every aspect of Fram-
ingham State. The Gatepost has won many wards
for its impressive layout and quality of articles.
In 1 965, the first literary magazine was founded
under the name of Nexus. This name was first
changed to Reflections, and then to ONYX in
1966. The ONYX has three boards with three
specific purposes. One picks the student art, an-
other student literature, and the third is respon-
sible for the overall publication. All work appear-
ing in the ONYX is produced and judged by
In 1976, the first issue of the Mahgnimarf Lam-
poon was published by seniors John Ferren and
Joe Sano. Though inconsistently published since
then, the Magnimarf has entertained students
through parodies and satires and with cutting ob-
servations of life on campus. The Magnimarf has
always been controversial and every issue chal-
lenges the time with humor.
The Alumni Association produces a regular
newsletter and has done so since 1964. This pub-
lication keeps Framingham alumni informed of
events at the campus and on political issues
which could effect the school. Long after the
students leave Framingham they can retain a link
to their college.
The Black & Gold Service Committee serves to
welcome incoming students to the college during
orientation as well as giving tours of the school to
visitors. Academically orientation clubs include;
the English club, the Art Activitists, the French
club, the History club, the Philosophy club, Active
Sociologists, and the Spanish club as well as the
Math Computer Science club, Psychology club
and Graphics club. These organizations offer
students experiences related to their majors and
provide them with additional instruction through
speakers and field trips as well as a social setting.
One club recently revived was founded in 1 975 is
the Economics club. Today it is known as the
Economics/Business club and sponsors guest
lectures who have spoken on trade relations and
the AFL-CIO. This organization is rapidly gaining
student interest and increasing in membership.
The Rugby Club has competed against many
universities throughout Massachusetts and has
been active in raising money through their "rent-
a-rugger" day. This organization, though sports
related, is funded through SGA. They have seen
many successful seasons and have participated
in various competitions, including a conference in
the Bahamas in March of 1989.
Religious organizations on campus include
Hillel and the Christian Fellowship which have
been active in bringing about an awareness of dif-
ferent religions and providing for the needs of
students on campus. Hillel was founded in the
1950's. The Christian Fellowship is the successor
to the three organizations which were founded
earlier in the century for Protestants and Cath-

The newest club on campus, FSC's Gays and
Friends, has sought to bring about an under-
standing of homosexuality and to present impor-
tant information about issues effecting the gay
community. The club has co-sponsored the
Health Fair and also sponsored lecturers who
have spoken on the difficulties of being homo-
sexual in today's society and the dangers AIDS
presents to every student at FSC.
The Residence Hall Association does not fall
under the Student Government Association but
helps to promote a positive atmosphere in the in-
dividual residence halls on campus. The Resi-
dence Hall Council has been a meeting place for
resident students to discuss concerns and plan
social activities to improve the quality of life at
Sports on campus have provided a similar
means of enjoying out-of-classroom time. The
football, basketball, hockey and baseball teams
have all had successful season and were founded
after the admission of men to the college in 1964.
Women's athletics include volleyball and softball,
as well as an equestrian team. These teams also
have had many successful seasons and have
competed against public and private schools
throughout New England.
It is this combination of activities that over the
years have helped to round out the education of
many men and women who have been a part of
the college community. It is through co-
curriculars that the student can expand their abili-
ties outside of the classroom and find additional
actions or subjects in which they have concern

The 1988-89 academic year was given extra meaning and enjoyment as the
school looked to represent and celebrate its past history. These events were
spaced throughout the year. Framingham chose to celebrate by telling all, present
and past people involved with them, the accomplishments of the institution. The
Ellen Hyde Discussion Group, originated in 1 964, put on a pageant telling the story
of five influential women of the past. Also seen in the semester was the Sesqui-
centennial Ball and a lecture given by Teacher of the Year, Terry Wikes. To round
out the year, the school hosted an Alumni Weekend, which included reunions for
many different classes, a golf tournament, a harbor cruise and ceremonies rec-
ognizing the anniversary. During this ceremony, the college received a letter from
President George Bush recognizing its achievements.

1 o the Future . . .
The graduating class of 1 989 represents an impor-
tant landmark in the history of Framingham State Col-
lege. The members of the Sesquicentennial Class are
living proof of the vibrant tradition of the excellence that
Framingham State has personified in the past and will
continue to embrace in the future. The innumerable
contributions, to both the College and the world, to
meet the tradition of excellence are applauded and we
look forward to future contributions you can make as
an alumni of this fine institution.
When we began our Freshman year the College had
just been through some dramatic changes. Dr. Weller
was our president, the campus was completely dry as
the Pub was closed and our residence halls were re-
covering from over a year of fire alarms and extreme
damage. Over time, these changes were accepted if
not entirely universally agreed with in theory. Dr. Weller
became involved and was accepted into the campus
community wholeheartedly. In time, the Pub was re-
opened and the fire alarms began to come under con-
These changes, which struck the core of Framing-
ham State College at the time, were made possible by
an intrinsic characteristic dominant in all Framingham
students, staff and faculty. This characteristic is stead-
fast, solid pride in our institution. From the students
and faculty to the staff and administration, Framing-
ham has the capability of pulling together and utilizing
all resources to the fullest in order to preserve the insti-
tution as a whole. We have successfully preserved a
long history of academic excellence and recently have
begin a legacy of excellence in our many co-curricular
activities as well.
Particularly in the past four years there have been
some situations that were potential roadblocks to fulfill-
ing our high standards. The budgetary cuts on both the
local, state and federal levels, budgetary reversion
which took money from our pockets even as we were
reaching for it, and ultimately, inadequate budget allot-
ments to continue running an institution of our caliber
would be enough to try even the most hardy soul. It did
inevitably affect our morale as a student body if nothing
else but even this could not adversely affect the school
as a whole. Our pride and our strong backbone have
pulled us through and expanded our reputation so that
applications for admissions have skyrocketed. This
year showed a record 5,000 applications for 1,000
Fighting throughout the state's financial difficulties
became a priority for many of us in the past. Driven by
the knowledge and understanding for a need for
affordable quality higher education, Framingham
students formed statewide coalition for the purpose of
lobbying the State for our rights. The coalition, called
S.O.G.T.H.: Students Opposed to Unfair Tuition Hikes,
won a victory at the State House. While this victory was
not unconditional, Framingham students led the way
to lower the proposed increase and keep education
affordable for a while to come.
While the institution fought for continued state sup-
port, many of the students in particular indulged in a
plethora of excellent co-curricula activities. Our Men's
and Women's basketball teams have posted cham-
pionship seasons in our tenure here and our Rugby
Club Team has won tournaments across New England
and has traveled as far as Florida and the Bahamas to
compete. The individual classes have become increas-
ingly involved in the entire community with successful
Investiture speakers and the perennial Ram Aid contest
inaugurated by the Class of 1988 and proudly con-
tinued. The Student Union Activities Board (SC1AB) has
presented quality activities every week and has dis-
tinguished itself in most recent years with awards from
the National Association of Campus Activities. Finally,
the Student Government Association (SGA) master-
fully gained the respect and admiration of the college
community with its leadership in times of crisis. SGA
also assisted in the formation of several new clubs and
completely revamped the constitutions of the organiz-
ation already existing.
Framingham State College has had a diverse his-
tory. Her legacy, particularly in your stay here, has been
varied. From diversity we rose to promote excellence.
Pride in our institution helped us through the trying
times and raised us to amazing highs in the good
times. The Class of 1 989 are to be commended for the
role they have played in our history. The page is blank
for the next chapter in Framingham's history. Won't it
be interesting to see what the Class of 2039, the Bi-
centennial Class, has to offer?

last, Present, Future
This special year is a particularly
appropriate time to reinstate the
tradition of a dedication. The "past,
present, and future students, faculty
and administrators" was chosen be-
cause it was too difficult to focus on
any one person over 1 50 years of in-
tricate history. Those pictured on
these pages are a representative
sample of people from our past,
present and potential future. It has
been said that reward of a job is what
you put into it — the personal sat-
isfaction, doing what you desire — is
the reward, not the money or the
recognition, but the self gratitude;
so this edition is dedicated to all
those — past — present — future —
people who desire the personal re-
ward of extending the extra step!
From the past we can recognize
the founder of the school, Cyrus
Peirce, as an example of someone
willing to take the risks involved in
improving education by devoting
not only his time and energy, but
also his money to build an institu-
tion worth attention and recogni-
Every day students are made
aware of the accomplishments of
President D. Justin McCarthy. Some
of his accomplishments include the
construction of 8 buildings, an in-
crease in enrollment and the ac-
ceptance of males, and accredita-
tion of academic programs.
There are of course many stu-
dents who have also contributed to
the school's growth and recogni-
tion. One of the major contributors
to campus life was Paul T. Murphy,
who expanded and generated stu-
dent activities and motivated school
spirit. This is only one example of
many people who were proud of
their affiliation with Framingham

uncertainty as to who will be the

Oeniors Celebrate Together
On Sunday October 23rd, the class
of 1 989 gathered to continue the tradi-
tion of Senior Investiture. The third
Sunday in October is traditionally the
first time the graduating class of F.S.C.
officially wears their caps and gowns.
The ceremony opened with a bene-
diction from Father John Culloty
blessing the students and furthermore
humorously praying that they all get
jobs to pay their parents back. Pres-
ident Weller then introduced Dr. Dana
Jost, speaking to the graduates as
Senior Faculty Member. His speech re-
counted many years of progress and
change in Framingham State com-
munity both in the campus and the
education process in his 36 years.
Class President Steve Goldman
posed the question to find the meaning
of Investiture by wondering what the
graduates had gotten out of the college
and what kind of people they have be-
come in their years at school. In clos-
ing, he recognized the accomplish-
ments and contributions of Class Vice
President, Jayne Costello, to the class
of 1989. In honor of these, Goldman
gave his position in the Sesquicenten-
nial flag raising ceremony to her.
President Paul Weller then intro-
duced Higher Education Chancellor,
Frankly Jenifer. He spoke on the
changes and challenges in education
and careers in the past thirty years. He
urged the students to meet and over-
come the obstacles put before them in
order to take part in an expanding
society in which a college education is
necessary. The students were urged to
discover the future and use it to their
advantage to become the best they

guests along with disc jockeys and

The campus during the 88-89 year was
host to a combination of guests. The guests
gave the students the opportunity to learn,
question, enjoy and laugh. Some of the
featured visitors included Ted Kennedy Jr.
speaking on independence and civil rights
for the disabled; Mayor Andrew Young of
Atlanta; Poet Nikki Giovanni; and filmmaker
Henry Hampton, who spoke on the past,
present, and future of blacks in society; and
Allen Ginsberg, a poet, songwriter, and po-
litical activist who treated the audience with
his opinions about the world around us.
Each of these guests gave us insight into
the world outside campus.
On the more informal end, we were also
hosts to many comedians and musical
guests that helped the student body fill their
empty time. The bands Face to Face and
New Man were the bands at two different
dances. Meatloaf and Jon Butcher were the
headliners at Sandbox. The campus fea-
tured many different styles when Karen

musical guests. In addition to the many
local comedians who performed at our Five

dents to do. Many clubs offered
games of skill for prizes. You could

songs such as "Wishes." As the set

the crowd prepared for Meatloaf.
The concert featured the hits from
his "Bat Out Of Hell" album. In the
years since the release of that album
Meatloaf has become a cult figure
with the classics, "Two out of Three
Ain't Bad," "Bat Out of Hell," and
"Paradise By The Dashboard
Light." Everyone rocked to the con-
cert. It is on this note that the
Sandbox weekend was brought to
an appropriate end.

The Oxford Union Debating team came to Framingham State to
challenge us to an intellectual discussion. This takes on an inter-
esting twist because the method of debate allows the use of any
persuasive measure. Each team is, a mixture of people from both
schools who argue for and against the argument proposed. This
year the question posed for consideration was "Is Capitalism Ruin-
ing America?" The team arguing for the
position based their arguments on the dic-
tionary definition of capitalism; private
ownership and control, not controlled by
state; and equating this to mean that all
capitalists are greedy and only out for
themselves. The team against proposed
that this ownership wasn't greed, but ambi-
tion to succeed. Capitalists are taught to be
ambitious and get what they want.
The overall decision is put to the audi-
ence to determine how the arguments
fared whether the proposition is true or
false. The audience decided by one vote
that capitalism is ruining America. Close
margins such as this are what makes one
recognize the fine art of persuasion.

The Athletic pro-
gram at 'Jramingham State works to
support the time honored tradition of competi-
tion: competing, striving consciously or unconsciously for
an objective (apositum, profit, or prize). 'Worthing toward this
' goat challenges the student both physically and mentally to
improve himself and to contribute to an overall team
effort. The prize that is received may be a winning
season, recognition from your school, and/or peers
an award from your conference, or simply the
honor and pride of being part of a team.
Whether or not you score the winning point,
the contribution made is as valuable when providing the neec
morale and support. "By representing the student body against neighboring
colleges and universities, each member gains the satisfaction of contributing
to a community and increasing the esteem of the college and oneself. It is
the challenge of future seasons to overcome the present obstacles of
budget cuts and the unforseen obstacles of injuries which make the A
team effort that much more important. The striving for the
unity between athletes to make up a team achieves the
ultimate goal of sportsmanship and competi-
tion of the moment, yea Team 1 .

1 earn Effort Pulls Them Through
Strength and determination was
seen through the team effort of this
year's squad. Together they over-
came obstacles including having a
first year coach and many injuries
near the end of the season. Regard-
less of these obstacles the team
ended with a 10-8 record and had
many impressive wins including a
double overtime win over Wellesley
The team effort was also rewarded
with personal recognitions with
members Emily Smith, Katie Binder
and league-leading scorer Kellie
Dewar receiving All-Conference
awards. The F.S.C. Fall Sports Ban-
quet further recognized the ac-
complishments of Emily Smith as

W orking Together
The Men's Soccer team, despite a
strong team effort, faced some very
tough competition and finished the
season with an overall record of 3-
13-1. Scoring was led by Co-Captain
Scott Schofield who scored 8 goals
and made 2 assists. The team spent
the better part of this year rebuilding
and adjusting to the arrival of many
new team members. They spent a
great deal of time learning to work
together to achieve their goal, a
winning season. The team scored
substantial wins over Anna Maria
College, Worcester State and Curry
College. Their hard work this past
season should pay off with a suc-
cessful season next year.

ootball Rises to Meet the Challenge
The Football team showed that
they had great inner strength during
the 1988 season. They came
through with confident wins against
tough competitors. They showed
their great spirit as they rallied be-
hind the support of the school,
winning the Homecoming game
against S.M.CI. and following up with
a strong victory the next week
against Nichols College. Despite
their overall record of 2 and 7, there
were many great individual efforts.
Among the standouts were Dennis
Farr (Individual scoring); Frank Per-
fetuo (Rushing); and Kevin Piatt
(Passing). The Rams are looking
forward to a successful season
ahead as many of the underclass-
men will be returning.
Members of the team were rewarded
for their efforts. The highlights of the
season was the conferring of Defen-
sive End Bob McCuin and Wide Re-
ceiver Dennis Tarr to the New En-
gland Football conference second
team. Dennis Tarr leading punt re-
turner in N.CAA. Division III, was
also named to the Pizza Hut Football
Team as a kick returner.
It will be a rebuilding season, as
the seniors Kevin Piatt, Gary
Puppolo, Eric Walker, Chris John-
son, and Dave Valinote have come
to the end of their college career.
Next season the team will have to re-
build their motivating forces and
face the new challenges. The

O triking Toward The Future —
The Women's Volleyball team
proved to be a team that can per-
form gracefully under pressure.
With a conference game record of
4-2 they showed that they can pull
together for an important win. The
season included strong wins over
Westfield State, Bridgewater, and
Fitchburg State. Tri-captains Mary
Barros, Cindy Walton, and Katie
Donnelly led their team to an overall
10-18 record. The latent talents of
women's volleyball for any future
challenges will be revealed in the
seasons to come. They should be
proud in their accomplishments of
the season and they are certain to
reach higher than they ever have be-

Improving through Practice
Women's Field Hockey overcame a sea-
son plagued with losing streaks to come
out of the season with an overall record of
6-12-1, but more importantly members of
the team received recognition from their
conference. Players receiving honors
where Brenda Braskett, Robin Pare and
Tracy McHugh. Brackett and Pare were
named to the MASCAC All Conference
team, while McHugh received honorable
mention. Despite the overall losing record,
the determination of the team was converted
into positive through winning efforts
against Fitchburg State, Wheelock College,
and Anna Maria College to close the season
on a positive note. The accomplishments
of this team met the challenge not of
whether the team won overall, but whether
they improved themselves and were proud
in their effort. Next year's squad will achieve
the same heights and bring new goals to a
new team. They will be able to convert their
enthusiasm into more awards and wins for
their team. The majority of this year's team
was freshmen which insures future seasons
of growth improvement and success.

O tarting Fresh on the Ice
The Ice Hockey team was once
again on the rebuilding track this
winter. The team finished fourth in
the conference under first year
coach Timothy Friday. Their overall
record was 5-19-1, and although
their overall record was not a win-
ning season the top scorers on the
team showed great strength. It is this
strength which they contributed to
the overall makeup of the team.
The team's top scorers were Cap-
tain Charlie Orato, John Greaney
and Dave Mullahy. As the skaters
look toward the future they find with
the experience of their returning
veterans along with the talent of in-
coming freshmen, next year's team
will be assured of a winning effort.

This season the individual mile-
stones reached by members of the
team served as an emotionally up-
lifting bonus to a team competing
for a winning season. Despite their
efforts, the women lost a number of
j games in the second half of their
< season. Their overall record was 8-
17. The contributions of a strong
and determined team and the speed
of Lisa Halloran, who led the team
with 101 steals motivated the Lady
Rams to look toward each game as
a new challenge. The team was also
rewarded with the scoring achieve-
ments of their captains. Halloran, a
5 '6" guard reached an individual
total scoring record of 2000 career
points. Zapustas, a 6'1" center
reached 1 000 career points. All the
members of this team should be
proud of their effort and look to the
future and become a winning force.

Looking Past the Barriers
The 1 989 Women's Softball team
stumbled this spring in their attempt
to have a winning season. Combin-
ing the individual talents of a team
into a winning effort proved to be a
difficult task. The team opened the
season with six straight losses.
While not able to provide momen-
tum to insure a win, they did
sharpen their own skills enough to
win four of the following six games.
The scores of the games ranged
from one extreme to another with
the Rams beating their opponents
by a 10 run margin in the first game
of the doubleheader, while losing
the second game by the same mar-
gin in their conference games
against North Adams State. Next
season the team hopes to con-
centrate their power to carry them to
a winning season.

F.S.C. Baseball worked together
this spring to create an interesting
and successful season. The season
began with a tournament in Tampa,
Florida and closed with an ECAC
Quarterfinal at Amherst College.
The team started out on a good
note, winning in Florida four of their
five contests by definitive margins.
Their only loss was a 1 4- 1 1 decision
for Bridgewater State.
Upon their return to Framing-
ham, they showed that their talents
were the product of an honest team
effort, losing only one of their next
eight games. The team's efforts
took F.S.C. all the way to the Confer-
ence Quarterfinals. Next year's team

lolicy Making in Action
Framingham State's Student
Government Association in the
1988-1989 academic year has
worked to be the voice of the stu-
dent concerning the changes in the
college community and to find out
what the students want and need in
a learning establishment. S.G.A. has
worked hard to fight the impending
budget cuts imposed by the state.
They sponsored a trip to The State
House to protest the budget cuts in
higher education in Massachusetts.
They also included the college com-
munity in sponsoring a phone drive
to inform state representatives
about our concern toward cuts fac-
ing education and attempting to
raise money to help the budget.
Through these and other events de-
signed to help all the people con-
nected with the college (blood
drives, Midnight Madness and work-
ing with the college to help to cel-
ebrate the sesquicentennial anni-
versary of the college), S.G.A. has
been a strong and visible organiza-
tion on campus concerned with the
rights of the student.
As the 1989 academic year
comes to a close, the tenure of Heidi
Gustafson as Student Government
President also ends. Heidi has suc-
ceeded in bringing Student Govern-
ment to new heights and encour-
aged the entire college community
to be more politically and socially
aware of campus as well as world
events. Congratulations Heidi on a
job well done; you and your contri-
butions will be missed.

Allen's fantasy relationship with Bogart and
his everyday relationship with his best

their DJM Prom where everyone had a chance
to relax and have some fun. This year they
gave away a limousine ride and tickets to

with tickets to numerous shows at local

The Dial Yearbook is an organization on campus that
introduces the student body to both the artistic and busi-
ness elements of putting together an annual publication.
During the course of the year, the staff develops a theme
through which we photograph the campus, relay the hap-
penings on campus in the copy, and lay out the pages
representing the events. It is through this knowledge that
we expand our abilities and work together as a team to
obtain the final project.
In order to put all of these parts we must learn the busi-
ness side of a publication, dealing with representatives
from all the organizations used to get the book in final
The process of producing this volume is very time con-
suming and does not end with the end of spring finals.
Those determined to finish a project have spent many
hours brainstorming and creating for the Dial Yearbook.
This yearbook is the end result and is something that
the staff and the school can take pride in.

The faculty and
Administration are an important
part of any school system. These p topic, who
^provide this learning environment, are often overlooked.
7 'Early in our schooling they help us to discover the basics:
'reading, writing, and arithmetic. As we further our edu-
cation, they develop our kticnuledge through the varied
academic programs as well as intensify our desires to A
learn. 'Educators at 'Jramingham State serve a
purpose: to eTcpand upon what is learned in
the classroom and encourage students to
open their minds and look^toward the
future. !As we head into our second 1 SO years, we can foresee some diffi-

the 9dA 'Kxgher Education have severed the abdity to increase faculty

has created and affected the world
around us and how, we in turn, use
what we learn from these sciences
to help ourselves in everyday life.
While each science is a very ex-
tensive and complicated subject the
basic elements help us to function
in everyday life. They teach us how
to care for our families and work
with people in our careers. It is
through these sciences people are
cared for outside of their homes as
they are in schools and workplaces

the basic elements that can help the
people give to the society. The
knowledge of math and computers
can help in everyday tasks such as in
money management, or be an
important part of a project that
could have a larger meaning to all

W or Id and Our Past
As students move toward the future
we realize that all we experience hap-
pens because of what is around us and
what has happened before us. What we
know of the world around us forces us
to discover more about the places we
have not experienced. What the gener-
ations before us have done to improve
our rights, insure our freedom and in-
crease our power as a nation motivates
us as a new generation to meet and
surpass the challenges of the past,
reaching the goals of a society on the
verge of a new century. It is for these
challenges that we look at the world
and its geography and its history. The
departments at Framingham work to
ensure that we will learn from the mis-
takes and successes of the world and
carry that knowledge into our future

Inside the Mind
The connection of the mind the body
and the soul can be seen in the sci-
ences of the mind. Psychology and
Philosophy open the world of the mind.
We discover how and why we think. We
learn how the decisions in our life affect
our body and what, in the structure of
the mind, controls the way we think. We
come to decisions because of the in-
ternal desires and needs of our mind.
Once we are introduced to the tech-
nical elements, the parts and how they
function, in the world of psychology; we
can move further into the soul. When
we trace the thought process and
come to a decision, there is a connec-
tion between our emotions and our
body chemistry. Philosophy examines
the questions of right and wrong and
the meaning and definition of knowl-
edge and truth and through these def-
initions we exercise our mind, achiev-
ing a skill in which we attain clear and

ducation through Communication
The written and the spoken lan-
guage are the elements that give
society all around the world the
ability to communicate and express
ideas together in business and
everyday life. The elements of lan-
guage, either domestic or foreign,
allow us to broaden our abilities and
expand our knowledge into cultures
where we do not live. The better we
can understand life, as seen in what
was expressed before us can ex-
pand our instruction to future gen-
erations and educate them about
the art of communicating and pre-
senting literature and themselves in
the best possible light.
The way that one communicates
meaning is not always straight for-
ward, it is hidden in the way one
speaks or in the symbolism of writ-
ing. It is the goal of a learning atmo-
sphere to show the student how to
correctly relay meaning while using
talents of speech: presentation or in-
flection or talents of the written
work, such as symbolism or diction.
These talents are how the student
is taught to integrate these skills into
the world around them to become a
strong communicator and educated

As Seniors move along through their final year at
Framingham State, there are ceremonies that bring
them toward that final goal, graduation. At F.S.C., the
first of these ceremonies is Senior Investiture. On the
third Sunday in October, the seniors get their first
chance to don their caps and gowns as future gradu-
ates, and look back on their accomplishments.
Class President Steve Goldman posed the ques-
tions of why they were here, what they had achieved,
and what they were bringing out of their years at
Framingham State College. While Goldman looked
back only at the past four years, Senior Faculty
Member Dana Jost and Keynote Speaker, Chancellor
of Higher Education, Dr. Franklyn Jenifer, looked back
over many years and recounted the changes that have
taken place to move our society to become more in-
terested in improving the mind and the body. When
looking back, Jenifer challenged the graduates to
reach for new goals and bring the world, to which they
belong, into a new future with positive changes for all
With this first recognition of their impending gradu-
ation, the students moved on through the year's re-
sponsibilities and classes. As May 21 approached, the
seniors spent the previous week celebrating. The last
evening before Graduation Day, a second formality
marked their time at F.S.C., the Baccalaureate Cer-
emony. It is during this ceremony that the students,
along with members of the faculty and staff, recognize

Countdown '89 was the first op-
portunity for the Class of 1 989 to get
together with their friends and class-
mates for an official celebration of
graduation. The senior class and
their friends came to the pub for a
musical variety show with performer
Gordie Milne. Some problems were
encountered because on this partic-
ular night, the campus lost heat; so
everyone had to find a way to stay
warm while partying the night away.
Despite the inconvenience, every-

Monday night of Senior Week, the
graduates got their first chance to
enjoy themselves outside of our
Framingham campus. Although it
took a while to get everything ready
to go, finally the senior class pulled
out, and headed for the Boston
dance club: Downstairs At Nick's.
Along with plenty of good friends,
good music, and a great place to
dance, we were given a new and in-
teresting activity. Pick a song,
they'd play the video and you'd get
the chance to go on stage and either
lip-sync or sing the song yourself.
The evening's entertainment pro-
vided many different musical styles
ranging from Dave Lennon doing
Sinatra and Dan Ward doing Man-
ilow to Madonna takeoffs and the
Class of 90 singing "Please Mr.
Postman." The crowd's renditions
of the musical selections provided a
break in the dancing and added an
extra laugh to the evening.
t hating by the Lights of Boston
This year the senior class included
a Harbor Cruise during senior week
events. The cruise, one of the week's
more popular happenings, let the
Seniors and their friends party in a
different atmosphere while ex-
periencing Boston in an unusual
and exciting manner which they
may not have thought of before.
While on the boat, it gives you a dif-
ferent outlook: you aren't stuck in-
side a hot, dark club. You can
choose to either be inside the boat,
dancing with your friends, or if that
gets too crowded, you can take time
out and go on deck to look at the city
and the Harbor. It can be some-
thing that is a very refreshing break
to the party scene or if you're a
couple looking for a place to be
alone, up on deck looking at the
stars could be the perfect interrup-
tion to the evening's events. It lets
everyone party to their own taste.

On Thursday, May 19, 1989 an-
other Framingham tradition took
place to add to the seniors festivities.
The Commencement Ball, one of
the more formal events of the week,
allows for the graduates and their
friends to dress in their best and
enjoy a good meal along with a
night of dancing. Couples appreci-
ated the talent of the live band,
dancing and getting together with
friends to talk or catch up. The ball
lasted far into the night and the
people who attended this gala affair
were impressed with the elegance of
the night. Seeing that this will be
the one of the few formal events
where the graduates can celebrate
in a elegant fashion, it allows for a
new taste of accomplishment and a
feeling of success as they present
themselves in the best way possible.

hard work, as seen in papers and exams, are brought together in a cer-
emony the graduate will remember. The commemoration of the 1989
Sesquicentennial graduating class was no different.
The day overflowed with great excitement shown in the faces of the
graduates looking toward the event of their day. Keynote Speaker
Thomas "Tip" O'Neill, Jr. congratulated the graduates on what they
have done, urging them to move into the future by using the past his-
tory to help overcome new obstacles.

Since we've been together
Everything's been easier
We've enjoyed the pleasures
Faced the bad times until the end
And sometimes we may argue
And maybe we might even get mad
But because we are together
We remember the good times we had
That's what friends are for
Life goes on just like before
If you're not the least bit sure
You've got a friend and that's the cure
Now we've gone the distance
And who we've met, go their separate ways
Like the feathers on an eagle
Through it's flight
Some leave and some stay
Now comes the time of parting
We all laugh, we think and we cry
But the memories will stay with us
And life goes on
After we say goodbye
But we're gonna still be friends
We may leave but it's not the end
Deep inside you'll still be there
We're far away but you'll still be near
Hold on to your memories
for your support

from the Editor
Our time has come to close this edition,
and this last piece of body copy seemed the
furtherest down on our list of things to do.
But here it is. "The challenge of today, and
the discovery of tomorrow"; this was our
theme, ever so subtly depicted (and prob-
ably missed) . . . We certainly found it a
challenge to successfully fill 264 pages with
past events. The discovery of tomorrow will
come after the benefits of this experience
are utilized elsewhere in each of our lives.
The theme ties in with the seniors four years
as the space shuttle Challenger took flight
during freshman year and the Discovery in
their senior year. The graphics (thanks to
Mac) depict a sun dial, overtones of the
1939 edition, and of course, current ideas.
Teamwork, to the staff, was an important
theme because it was the vital glue to the
organization and the completion of this
It is that teamwork that allowed us to take
on a larger responsibility of increasing the
size of the edition to include an extra 32
pages devoted purely to the past history of
this institution. The process proved to be a
challenge. We not only had to concentrate
on the events of the past year, but also find a
representative sample of the years before
us. We hope that we have portrayed that
history in the best way possible.
Now, as we the editors look back on our
work this year we recognize the effort it
took. For example, 93% of the book was
completed after June 1 st and that required
many long hours both in and out of the
office. It was amazing where our ideas
came to light, in the shower, in that thirty
seconds before we went to sleep, and 5
o'clock in the morning and it just had to be
written down before we could complete the
task at hand.
And while it's been hard convincing
those around us (our individual support
systems) that what we were doing wasn't a
waste of time, we know that when we look at
the final product (in about 10 months) we
can be proud that something we have created
will be in existence long after we leave FSC,
but the experience and memories will also
We could not have completed this with-
out help from the many people. To begin,
Kristin, the Copy editor went above the call
of duty and put up with the constant de-
mand on quality writing, a simple thank-
you doesn't even touch the surface. Mike,
we're glad you were around, both for pro-
fessional support and personal support,
your opinion was always valued — not al-
ways asked for but still appreciated. To the
Company Representatives, Arnie Lohman
(Hunter Publishing) and Norm Benrimo
(Yearbook Associates), your support was
tremendous, thanks for giving us that extra
mile. Jonathon Blake saved us from many
scrapes with his extra photography contri-
butions, if it wasn't for you many of the can-
dids and most of graduation would be
lacking. Marilyn Foley and Beverly Weiss
continually supported us with the added
project of the Sesquicentennial section. We
could go on and on with our gratitude, so to
each and every person who offered advice,
support, photography, a friendly smile on a
bad day, and their love, THANKS!!!!
This now concludes the ramblings of the
Editors. Congratulations and good luck to
the staff members who graduated. This is
one year we won't forget for a long time.
